Anita & Kenny’s Country Wedding


Anita and Kenny were married 12th at Beryl Baptist Church in Villonia, AR.  The reception was originally going to be a bbq/bonfire, but the crazy huge snowstorm that rolled in earlier in the week put a serious damper on any outdoor activities. But everyone still had a great time! This couple is so fun and unique, and are busy working on fixing up their spread in the country. The weather was great the day after the wedding, so we met up for a family portrait session. Stay tuned for a blog post on that session coming soon.


The bride got ready with help from lots of friends and relatives.

The two smallest members of the bridal party were just too cute! They were having quite a conversation during the group portraits.

Whew - weddings are hard work, and Kenny is worn out 🙂


Anita is actually a distant relative of mine, and my dad officiated the ceremony. Since Anita is a cop and Kenny is in the Air Force, they encouraged attendees to wear their uniforms.


I'm sure I am going to catch heck for posting this pic of my favorite cop busting up laughing, but I don't care because it makes me smile!
